Relay for Life of Franklin County is ready to kick off the new year, and plan for the June event.
A kick-off meeting and pep rally will be held Tuesday at Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital in the Medical Office Building third-floor conference room.
The event begins at 6 p.m. and is open to returning teams, new teams, individuals who would like to join a team and anyone who wants to participate as a volunteer.
A new feature to start off the year will be the "Relay Diner." For a $5 donation, dinner will be provided and proceeds will go to Relay for Life of Franklin County.
Online registration help, fundraising ideas, drawings and more are also planned for this event.
This year's Relay will be held on June 21-22 at Franklin County High School.
